Detail Description

Only edition of this Hassidic work by R. Aaron ben Jacob, the Great of Karlin; R. Asher, of Stolin and R. Aharon, ha-Gadol mi-Karlin with an introduction by R. Abraham Elimelekh Shapira. The title-page describes Mishnat Hakhamim as the holy words said with a fiery heart from above for whom the gates were opened and the eyes of the sages enlightened in their learning and the eyes of all Israel in their Torah, the Torah of truth. In his introduction R. Grossman gives the background of the authors and of Hassidus, followed by the text, which is comrosed of two hundred seven sayings.

Karlin-Stolin is a Hasidic dynasty originating with Rebbe Aaron the Great of Karlin in present-day Belarus. Karlin was one of the first centres of Hasidim to be set up in Lithuania. Today the Karliner dynasty is thriving once again after being decimated by the Holocaust. Karlin-Stolin Hassidim can be found all over the world: Israel, America, Russia, England, Mexico and Ukraine. The Karliner Hasidim are especially known for their custom to cry out in a strong and loud voice to God when praying. They are also known for their hospitality. Karlin-Stolin Hasidim established themselves in Eretz Yisrael in the mid-19th century, settling in Tiberias, Hebron and Safed. In 1869 they redeemed the site of a former synagogue in Tiberias which had been built in 1786 by Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk but was destroyed in the Galilee earthquake of 1837. Construction of the new synagogue started in 1870 and was possible by collection of funds from the diaspora. This synagogue, still in use today, stands in the cluster of Ancient synagogues of Tiberias. It was during this time that Karlin-Stolin Hasidim settled in Jerusalem, and by 1874 they had established the Beth Aaron Synagogue in the old city. Today, the Karlin-Stoliner Rebbe Boruch Meir Yaakov Shochet resides in Givat Ze'ev, a Jerusalem-affiliated Israeli settlement northwest of Jerusalem. Most of the Karlin-Stolin Hasidim reside in and near Jerusalem, there are also Synagogues in Beitar Illit, Bnei Brak, Kiryat Sefer, Brachfeld, Safed, and Tiberias — as well as in the United States, in Boro Park, Monsey, New York, and Lakewood, New Jersey; and in London, England, and in Ukraine.
